Honours study enables you to consolidate and integrate the results of an undergraduate degree and to clearly indicate to the world your ability to pursue major research projects in academic or professional settings.
What is Honours?
Honours is an extra year of study, usually following immediately on from a undergraduate pass degree, that combines aspects of undergraduate study with those of post-graduate research. It introduces advanced research training through the completion of a thesis or a creative or practice-based research project.
Why complete an Honours degree?
An Honours degree is accepted as proof of your capacity to work independently, to see a major project through to the end, to write clearly, and to construct a chain of argument and reasoning leading to logical conclusions.
An Honours degree opens the way into postgraduate research programs (MA by Research and PhD). It is also helpful for career progression as it is much respected by future employers in a wide range of fields, in both the public and private sector.
